    Man living in Chicago is asked what his favorite bear is and does not mention the Chicago Bears nor the Chicago Cubs.

    That’s because I’m a white Sox fan. Boom.

    I can’t wait for information on the Church of Caine. I do hope there’s some options for playing humane Noddists, though.

    Every tidbit about the Folio and LTSRR Chronicles is appreciated.

    I can’t tell if I am more interested in the Blood Gods or Deviant Kickstarters.
